Plum Barbecue Sauce

Yield 2 cups (serving size: 2 tablespoons)
Drape this zesty sauce over food after it's cooked, or brush it on during the last minute or two of cook time. Serve with grilled chicken, pork tenderloin, or burgers. Or add to a slow cooker with pork or beef roast. Smoky chipotle chile powder is a fine substitute for smoked paprika.

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
